Dutch vessels in a strong breeze
A number of vessels are shown moving briskly through the waves in a strong breeze. The boat on the left is probably a kaag, designed for use on inland waterways, with the leeboard visible. It flies the Dutch flag and one group of figures sits in the stern and another in the bow, including a figure dressed in red. Kaags were often used as ferries in the Zuider Zee, conveying cargo and people to and from seagoing ships. In the central distance a strip of land is shown, with buildings and a church on the skyline, while on the far left another small craft sails on the same course as the kaag. To the right a fishing boat with a leeboard visible sails towards the land, flying a flag at the stern. There are other craft in the distance, indicating considerable activity on the waterway.
